This shop offered some unique flavors of ice cream, both dairy and non-dairy based. There was a small deck for outdoor seating.

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. They weren't especially busy, but there was a steady trickle of customers coming in. Everyone that got them liked the waffle cones and enjoyed the ice cream. Had a hard time deciding what to get as I don't...eat ice cream often (the visit was for the kids), but ended up with the coffee ice cream ... pretty good, not the best I've ever had, but good. Service was friendly and efficient.More

Limited odd flavors. No chocolate without alcohol. The continued mask mandate is irritating. Too many other options to put up with masks, no restrooms, or indoor seating.

Great small creamery. Delicious variety of flavors. Although I may try a different flavor here and there, who am I fooling... It is all about the Mexican vanilla! Delicious!! Get a couple of scoops in a housemade waffle cone and you are good to go....Always friendly service. Thanks for being open on a Sunday evening!!More

We love ice cream and so were excited to visit to bring some home. The ice cream was very expensive, but as it was 'artisan' we thought it would payoff on the product. We tried tubs of a salted caramel and a strawberry flavour. Strawberry...was OK, but the salted caramel was split - and had unpleasant greasy lumps in it.More

Salted peanut was great, bet they make a mean salted caramel (wish I could try it but not available today). Coffee & creme was only so-so, not strong enough coffee flavor. Only a handful of flavors, many with alcohol. Could use bigger selection.

Don’t let the size of the place fool you, it’s small put the ice cream is packed with goodness. I tried the waffle cone with blueberry, the cone was none like any other. It truly was so tasty, the best waffle cone thus far. The...blueberry ice cream was packed with fresh berries, and tasted fantastic. Go try it if you haven’t!More

Ok first of all they didn’t have chocolate which made me go out of my comfort zone a bit. I got the Mexican vanilla bean vanilla with hot fudge and chocolate kitties. Kids for the same. It was very good.

5/29/2019 Still good with unique flavors. I had the chai(vegan) my mom had the strawberry she said it was very good and the cones are freshly made. My husband tried the chocolate with rice krispy in it and he enjoy the smple I brought out...to him. Great customer service and unique Refreshing after a disappointing lunch.More
